Leicester City dealt potential Jonny Evans blow ahead of Brighton

Leicester held by Napoli

Leicester got their Europa League campaign underway on Thursday evening, playing host to Serie A side, Napoli.

The Foxes have been drawn in Group C alongside Legia Warsaw, Spartak Moscow and the aforementioned Napoli, with the Italians looking set to prove the toughest test for Brendan Rodgers and co. over the coming months.

And, when all was said and done at the King Power on Thursday, this does look set to be the case.

Leicester enjoyed the better of the game during the first hour or so and would prove a real handful for the Naples-based outfit on the counter.

This would lead to Ayoze Perez and Harvey Barnes firing the hosts into a two-goal lead after 64 minutes.

However, Napoli would fight back and a late brace from Victor Osimhen saw his side return home with a share of the spoils:

Evans to miss Brighton?

As well as blowing a two-goal lead, Leicester also look to have picked up a personnel problem on Thursday.

As reported by the BBC, Rodgers said that Jonny Evans is a fitness doubt for this weekend’s game at Brighton on Sunday.

“He felt he was struggling to push off, so we’ll have to see that over the next 24 to 48 hours.”
